(STLMoms) – There’scontroversy brewing over a request to remake Barbie with more realistic curves.

Plus Size Modeling.com suggests Mattel create a plus size Barbie.  The website conducted a poll on its Facebook page last week asking if toy companies should make a curvy doll.

Some say more realistic curves would be a better role model for girls. Others believe that instead of a plus size Barbie, there should be a normal sized doll that exemplifies healthy eating habits.
